Learn how to use mind maps in the ESL classroom

Mind maps are a great way to brainstorm. These can be used in many different ways and can be an activity in and of themselves. Here we used the mind map to brainstorm for a short essay called "What's your hobby?". Mind maps can also be a work of art (unlike the one shown here), to help students figure something out or possibly make a decision.

"Hi Ian! I loved the course! It wasn't really difficult, but it was not easy - and I feel like I learned a lot. I definitely plan to continue using the resources. I have applied for and set up over 7 interviews already in China. If you add on various additional certs, like Young learners and what not I would take those. I plan to take a job in China and blog about it for the year to qualify for the 1000 hour cert. Thanks so much for an awesome learning experience" - Sandra Dee Bonadonna, TEFL 120
